Looking for a few good bloggers……

UPDATE: As of Sunday, I’ve passed on all of your names to Yumi.  You should be getting emails with codes enclosed!  Make sure to add a disclaimer to the end of your post telling that this is a sponsored post that you were compensated for and that you received your application from free.  This makes the FDA boys happy.  :D

A few weeks ago I hosted a review/giveaway for a great communication application on the iPhone and iTouch called Voice4u.

I shared the story of Yumi, the creator of Voice4u, and her struggle to provide her son with a communication system.

Finally Yumi decided to take the issue into her own hands. She spoke with engineers, therapists, doctors and teachers, and all of these people were able to help her create Voice4u.

Voice4u.

Thinking at first that it would be a personal application just for her son with autism, Yumi soon realized that people around the world with disabilities should use Voice4u too, since they all need the support.

Yumi is looking for a few good bloggers who would be interested in trying out Voice4u for themselves and then hosting a review/giveaway on their blogs.   It would be a sponsored post, which means you would be compensated for your time.  You would also receive a free application for one of your readers to win!

If you are interested in participating,  just leave me a comment.  Please include your email addy as well as your website addy and I’ll get in touch with you with all of the details!

  1. Tammy, I would love to host Voice4u!

  2. I am a former Special Ed teacher, mom of a child with DS and currently work with adults who have disabilities. I have a blog and would LOVE to review this product!

  3. We used a communication device with our daughter for years (dynavox), and just started a fund to help other kids buy them. I’ve always wanted to try newer ones and see if anything is better. I would love to test this and give one away in ellie’s memory!!!

  4. as soon as it’s a blackberry app, I’ll be all over it. I am forwarding the info to our OTs and SLPs.

  5. Oh that’s the app you were talking about!! How I wish I blogged!

  6. I sent you my email Tammy! :)

  7. bummer, I don’t have an Iphone or Itouch or I would love to do a review on our blogs.

  8. Wow, this sounds really cool! I’ve been actively resistant to PECS and have focused on signing with Ralph. I figured that his speech would come along nicely as he is only mildly delayed in many areas.

    Wrong.

    Speech is NOT coming along. It’s a tough nut for him to crack. I’ve be open to trying something like this with him!

  9. Hi Tammy, I know I already left a comment about not having an iphone but I realized that Junior’s home instructor has one and she uses some of the applications with her homebound kids who have communication issues like Junior. We would love to do a review of the application and post it on our blogs.

  10. This is very cool…I’ve already shared the link with my co-workers and we’re already sold on this app. I work in the special education dept and I see a need for this everyday.

  11. I have an ipod and iphone. I showed the program to Max’s SLP and she was interested in it. I would be happy to write something up on Max’s page.

  12. I would LOVE to give it a try. Ty is afraid of all of the voice communication devices that the state has. He freaks and starts to cry. I would love to try it. We are hoping to get a ipad in the near future and would love to give it a whirl on that!

  13. I’d love to try it out! I’m embarrassed to admit it, but both of my kids know how to use my iphone better than I do! It’s amazing at how user friendly they are and how much the kids love them – I can see this app being a great advantage to Miss Chels.

  14. Ooohh… this is so cool! Do you think there is a way to rent an I-phone or I-touch? (I know I sound ignorant)
    I don’t know much about them but I’ve been hearing such great things about kids with DS using them and I want to try it without spending all of that money for something that might not get used. Any tutorials or articles would be great too- anyone out there got info?
    This app sounds awesome! What a great contest Tammy. You do so many good things. (Yumi too )

  15. Hi, It’s me again. I would also be happy to host another review/giveaway on my site. I think this is a great thing and want to try it with Ellie!

  16. Wow, another giveaway! I won the Voice4U on 5minutesforspecialneeds and reviewed it here:

    I think this app has all kinds of potential for prompting communication.

  17. Kathryn says:

    I would love to try this for my daughter Ellie! We have been very frustrated in trying to find her voice output. We just got iPhones and Ellie loves them. see my latest post. It’s wonderful that you have figured this out. Assistive tech is our great hope for Ellie accessing the world.

  18. As soon as it can be used for HTC Tilt2 (at&t) I am all over it!

  19. My review and giveaway is up on my brand-new review site: http://joyinthisjourneyreviews.blogspot.com/2010/03/voice4u-app-for-iphone.html

    Praying that Parker is steadily improving this week, and that you are getting some rest!
